HUH?! Reporter Objects to Name of “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” Show – PC Run Amok

By Debbie Schlussel


The more I think I’ve seen everything, something even more ridiculous comes along. In this case, it’s a reporter’s objection to the name of a new TV show that just debuted on CW.

Detroit Free Press hack Julie Hinds is upset by the name of the new CW series, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” saying it’s offensive to women and the mentally ill. Yes, you can no longer use the word “crazy” because it offends the mentally ill (which I assure you includes Julie Hinds). Hinds, who often “reviews” and raves over shows and movies she hasn’t even seen yet, writes this:

“Crazy ex-girlfriend” is an insulting term for both women and millions of people living with mental illness.

Yes, she actually wrote that. By the way, the show is about a woman (played by actress Rachel Bloom) who quits her job as a lawyer to go stalk her boyfriend from summer camp, whom she apparently hasn’t seen in years. Um, is that not the very definition of a crazy ex-girlfriend? Again, anyone offended by that probably is crazy, including and especially Hinds.

The only reason Hinds, a known hack and unethical “reporter,” has a job is because of the Michigan Film Tax Credit, in which Michigan taxpayers paid 42% back in expenses for crappy movies (many of them straight-to-video and some of them semi-porn) and TV shows to be made in Michigan. It’s thankfully ending, but it enabled Hinds to keep her job writing slop for the Free Pressistan. She was going to be fired, but when Freep movie critic Terry Lawson quit and the film tax credit was enacted, they decided to keep her. All of her writings slobbered over the film tax credits, which were a giant sucking of money away from legit Michigan businesses and taxpayers to the coffers of Hollywoodites who couldn’t get funding to make their crap otherwise. I called it “the Julie Hinds Film Tax Credit,” since she drooled over every inane project and Tinseltown chump who came here to take advantage.

Full disclosure: Hinds has written a number of stories on me and interviewed me several times. But I was tired of her making crap up, so I declined to ever be interviewed by her again. I should have learned my lesson years ago, when I ran for the Michigan House in 1990 and lost by just one vote. Hinds wrote a piece about me and just flat-out lied and made up baloney. She wrote that she was watching me at the polls (she was nowhere to be seen) and that I was all alone, while my opponent had a huge group of supporters. False. My opponent wasn’t at the same polling place as me ever. And at another polling place where my opponent was campaigning, she was alone (no entourage). I was with my little brother and other campaign volunteers. But, in the interest of “drama,” she threw accuracy out the window, as she often does. When I called her on this, she claimed her “brother” or some other fictional relative told her about it. Yeah, great “reporting”–“my brother told me so.” You cannot believe anything this idiotette writes (although for years, she’s been confined to writing showbiz fluff and butt-snorkeling celebs). And, now, she’s a member of the PC Police.

Well, I know why Hinds was so offended by the title “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.” I think it hits a little too close to home for her (as in, her mirror).

Julie Hinds apparently took the film personally. You have to wonder why?

Julie Hinds sounds like a “progressive.” Therefore, there are an entire range of things that are considered objectionable and that should be censored or banned in accordance with the wishes of the “progressives.” Of course, there are many truly objectionable things that they wholly favor, but such hypocrisy is in the nature of the “progressive mentality.” Perhaps she will also seek to ban any references to Warner Brothers’ Loony Tunes as offensive to the mentally ill. And any references to “March Madness” during the basketball season will surely offend as well.

Thanks for the piece Debbie, this Julie Hinds person (I’ve never heard of her until just now after reading this) inevitably sounds like a pseudo-intellect to me on why she’s moaning and groaning about the usage and the terminology “crazy”.

A lot of folks have used the term for MANY reasons and definitions, it all depends how you’re using the word in whichever sentence structure. If she’s just one person alone in the wilderness who’s complaining about the word crazy, then it’s best for us to possibly ignore her, where it’ll be less noise coming from her!

This Julie Hinds seems to be what we sane people call nutty as a fruit cake. Also as a liberal doofus she sees fit to be offended by certain words like crazy, illegal, fetus, home schooling, guns, meat, etc. In turn losers like her love certain words like tofu, choice, progressive, government, Hillary etc. It stands to reason why she would be offended by the title of a make believe show on TV than say what happened at Planned Parenthood. That alone in my book classifies Hinds and idiots like her as crazy. If she happens to take offense at that statement then tough noogies.

I’m crazy. Crazy about low, low prices for you. I listen to Britney Spears “Crazy”. I shop at Crazy Eddie’s. I’m crazy about a thing called love. My favorite card game is crazy eights. Most importantly, I’m Julie Hinds, and my crazy last name is plural for the back end of donkeys!

If you have ever been stalked by someone I can tell you that it isn’t funny at all, is creepy and can be scary.

That is why the movie Fatal Attraction is still and always will be the scariest movie that I have ever seen. Glenn Close nailed the stalker ex perfectly in that movie.

We’re living in a time where morons are considered intelligent. In addition, the morons think they are intelligent. That’s always been true to some degree, but WAY more so now than anytime in my life.
